In 1948, David Ben-Gurion became the face of a great new generation of Jews. His single-minded passion for the Jewish people is as much a part of his legacy as is the State of Israel itself. Today, the Ben-Gurion Society (BGS) embodies that legacy: young men and women combining their knowledge, passion, and resources to build a strong and responsible Jewish community, at home, in Israel, and around the world. The Ben-Gurion Society includes all donors, ages 22-45, who commit a minimum gift of $1,000 to the annual Campaign for Jewish Needs.
